WordPress Beginner Tutorial #7: How to Create WordPress Posts

In this lesson, we’re going to look at posts in WordPress.

WordPress started as a blogging platform, so it’s excellent at creating blog posts. This class is building a site for a city called “Wordville”, so we’re going to use blog posts for news items.

– Go to Posts, then Add New.
– Enter a Title, “New Construction Project”
– Click “Change Permalink” and you can update the URLs for your site

Here is some suggested text for your post:

“There was some big news in Wordville recently. Construction of a large project called W3 was finished.”

On the right-hand side of the post screen, there are a “Publish” box, a “Format” box to change settings for your post. There’s also a “Categories” and “Tags” box that we’ll explain in a later video. Finally, there’s a “Featured Image” box which can associate an image with your post.

If your computer shuts off, or you close a tab accidentally … don’t worry. WordPress automatically saves your post every 60 seconds. These are in the “Revisions” feature.

The “Excerpt” feature allows you to create a short summary of your post.

“Custom Fields” is a useful feature, but not all themes support it.

“Comments” allows you to enable or disable comments for your post, and you can reply directly inside the WordPress admin.
